Great location and cottage was perfect for our family.
BEWARE: Online quotation meaningless to this wonderful property.
My wife and I were looking for a small unit in Seaside/Watercolor area that would be comfortable for us for the week. We located this property via VRBO, signed in online and after receiving the quote and printing out the confirmation for our stay, we booked the unit. When we arrived, everything represented on the web site was correct and our stay was great. We would totally recommend the property and it was a wonderful area.
Our problem stems from the fact that THE PRICE WE WERE QUOTED WAS NOT WHAT WAS CHARGED ON OUR CARD. On bringing this up to the MANAGER of Sandpiper Real Estate, we were told that is just the way that it is. (the quote was meaningless). I am not exaggerating in the least! Basically it came down to if we wanted to stay there, we would pay the higher rate. First we were charged additional by Sandpiper, then we were charged an additionally for using VRBO (a total of $10% higher than our original quote). The manager of Sandpiper would not even discuss this issue with me over the phone, though I requested this. Imagine picking up an item in a store only to be told when checking out at the register that the price marked on the item was actually 10% higher than what was marked on the shelf (and then being asked in an abrupt, curt, non caring manner if I wanted the item or not). That is exactly what happened to us. Renter beware, what you are actually charged may be nothing similar to what you are told you will pay.
To address you're “BEWARE: Online Quotation Meaningless” comments. Your original VRBO quote was for (2) adults to enjoy our “Wonderful” cottage. The online quote clearly included VRBO and Sandpiper fees before you confirmed your online purchase. What changed your online quote? Two adults, PLUS (2) dogs stayed in our cottage. This is fine, as we are pet friendly with pet fees. Our pet policy and pet fees are clearly written in our description. Sandpiper patiently explained fee policy on the phone. They even offered you a full refund to book elsewhere since you disagreed with paying fees. You chose to come and bring your dogs and you had a great time!
Would definitely recommend this pet friendly Seaside home. Amenities, location, comfort and friendly helpful property managers. Made for a perfect vacation to one of our favorite Florida community!
We were celebrating my husband’s 70th birthday and grandson’s 10th - just the three of us so two bedroom was perfect. Had some difficulty gaining access - the lock box was stuck - left several messages on Sat early evening and finally got someone to help. The toaster burns toast no matter what setting and the televisions were difficult to operate. Called maintenance on Monday someone promptly responded. We love Seaside - our fifth visit over the years at various houses - always have a great time!
Repeat visitor to this listing.

Very peaceful and perfect location!
Super easy and quick!
